  • Ah - I like to paint and draw standing up, but half the time I can't do it.... I've been very fortunate though, in not getting arthritis in my fingers; I can just about begin to imagine what that's like - movements I can still take for granted being painful or impossible. Still, we carry on because we've no bloody choice! You'd never know you had such problems from this painting; greens sort of grow before your eyes - before you know where you are, they've covered the paper or canvas. Still, as someone said (John Blockley, I think) if you see a jungle, paint a jungle. I've taken a considerable amount of comfort from that advice!

  • You'd never know you've had difficulty painting this, Charles. It's a beautiful woodland scene with such depth I feel I could walk into it. Great light and shade too.

  • Out of diversity etc. Despite your problems you have really made something special out of this scene and I take my hat off to you Charles.

  • Green again but such a wonderful mixture of greens and all looking so natural. I can see myself walking that lane wondering just what is around that corner. I hope you feel better soon, I know arthritis doesn't go away but sometimes eases with the weather conditions, lets hope for more dry sunny weather!
